Audi A3 Owners Find Added Power with K&N 57i International Intake Kit

 
 
The Audi A3 with a 1.6 liter engine is a popular commuter car in Europe. It is also equipped with a standard 5 speed transmission.

K&N Engineering has developed a 57i Series Air Intake Kit (57-0620) for the 2003 through 2009 Audi A3 1.6L L4 engine with 102 BHP. This kit is made to fit this specific application to create bolt-on horsepower right out of the box, said K&N Filter Project Manager Joost Adriaans. See below for a full list of applications.

The kit contains a molded intake tube that replaces the complete intake track from the original air box to the throttle body. "An oval shaped K&N Filter is placed on the open end of the intake tube," said Adriaans. "The filter is positioned far away from the engine in order to prevent hot air from entering the Intake System. To achieve maximum horsepower gains, it is necessary to pick up the coolest air possible. Cool air is denser than warm air."

A silicone hose is included to replace the vent hoses of the stock intake system.

K&N's 57i Series Induction Kits are easy to assemble with simple hand tools. "Simply remove the stock air box, install the molded intake tube with filter and connect the adaptors to the factory breather and vacuum tubes," said Adriaans.

"K&N also provides a stabilizer with brackets," said K&N Accessories and International Product Manager Dwayne Richardson. "As the motor torques the stabilizers flex with the motor to keep the K&N Intake Kit, 57-0620, in place."

All adaptors are made from high quality materials such as steel, aluminum, silicone or reinforced nylon to ensure long life.

The 57-0620 will also fit the following vehicles:
